The Copdock roundabout has fully reopened to traffic following a crash on Friday which left a lorry hanging over the bridge.
Concrete blocks have been put in place where the roundabout's crash barrier was damaged during the collision.
Engineers will return at a later date to permanently fix it.
However, it may take some time to repair as it needs a new barrier specially made.
A Highways spokesman said: "Because the fence is a bespoke unit for the bridge it is going to take some time to manufacture a new one.
You may also want to watch:
"Therefore we are going to install concrete blocks in the hole as a temporary measure."
Police were called at around 5pm on Friday, June 7, after receiving reports a lorry, heading towards Essex, had overturned and was hanging off the side of the bridge.
